From the Wikipedia entry for "Cabiria":

220px-Cabiria_1914_poster_restored.jpg

Cabiria is a 1914 silent movie from the early years of Italy's movie industry, directed by Giovanni Pastrone (1883-1959). The movie is set in ancient Sicily and Carthage during the period of the Second Punic War (218-202 BC). It follows a melodramatic main plot about an abducted little girl, Cabiria, and features an eruption of Mt. Etna, heinous religious rituals in Carthage, the alpine trek of Hannibal, Archimedes' defeat of the Roman fleet at the Siege of Syracuse and Scipio in North Africa. Apart from being a classic on its own terms, the film is also notable for being the first film in which the long-running film character Maciste makes his debut. According to Martin Scorsese, in this work Pastrone invented the epic movie and deserves credit for many of the innovations often credited to D.W. Griffith and Cecil B. DeMille. Among those were the first use of the moving camera, thus freeing the narrative film from "static gaze".

It has been many years since I have seen this film. Over forty years ago me and my colleagues secured an original nitrate print and talked an old projectionist friend to run the film early in the morning at a local third run theater. The quality suffered but the content of thrilling action and adventure was there with elaborate sets that could only be done at enormous expense today.

The print quality of this representation is excellent.

Give it a view...you will enjoy especially if you like silent [and I mean silent here] films.
